"Good to start"

Approves of CEO

Pros

Good package - (salary, benefits, etc)
Good early opportunities - if you are willing to work for it
Strong company that will be around

Cons

The ceiling comes relatively early - unless you are willing to sacrifice certain beliefs (I won't throw others under the bus to further my career)
Work/Life balance is difficult if you want to continue to be given opportunities - you're judged on the hours vs. the quality of content. When I am talking hours, 50 is considered OK, but 60 is preferred...

Advice to Management

Take a look at how certain attitudes are rewarded and others are disregarded. You don't have to step your way to the top - just look at our CEO if you want a good example.

    Nice starting salary

    Nice team, many SALES people have been working there for years

    Cons

    Unequal treatment of analysts
    No opportunity for growth within the company, just laid off people, not much movement within the company
    Dont really have a handle on what to do with analyts after the associate level, no promotions to senior analysts

    Advice to Management

    Need more competent leadership. Work to get the analysts under you to the next level. Be honest with your team as far as advancement opportunities.
